Bennie was a wonderful man. He was always ready and eager to talk to anyone, sharing his great stories. He was down to earth, generous, and kind. We loved him and will miss running into him at Joe's and Filipp's. We regret that we will not be able to attend his Memorial Service. We donated a Youth Hunt and it is scheduled for Saturday. Rest in peace, our dear friend!
